The lockdown has hit foodies the hardest. People who loved to gorge on their favorite burgers and pizzas are now being forced to get creative at home. But that is not necessarily a bad thing. The lockdown has given us the opportunity to explore new options. One such option would be Brown Baking Company. For this could easily be the best bakery in Chandigarh tricity that is delivering even during this period.
A couple of days ago, we had the opportunity to try some of their products and it is safe to say that we weren’t the least bit disappointed. Here is the list of all the products that we received from Brown Baking Company:
- Chocolate Chip Dry Cake
- Burger Buns
- Pizza Base
- Whole Wheat Bread
- Plain Paos
Chocolate Chip Dry Cake
Dry cakes are the perfect evening snacks to go with your tea or coffee. The Chocolate Chip Dry Cake from Brown Baking Company is a revelation. It is not the kind of dry cake that will completely choke you without a liquid. The cake has a good moisture content locked in which keeps it soft without reminding you of the traditional cakes. The topping consists of a generous load of choco chips that is sure to make you drool and keep making you come back for more. The best part is that it is egg-less, so you don’t have to worry about a thing if you are a vegetarian!
Price: Rs. 190 for 350 gms
If we say they are the best bakery in Chandigarh tricity area, then be assured the burgers buns are soft and luscious. The set of four burger buns comes in a size that is relatively larger than the ones you find the market. But just because they are soft does not mean that they will crumble. This just goes on to reaffirm the fact that the burger buns by Brown Baking Company have been baked to perfection.
Price: Rs. 45 for a set of 4 buns.
We love making pizzas at home. If you have been following us on Instagram, you would know that. So clearly, we have a lot of experience with market sourced pizzas bases. But the ones from Brown Baking Company are unlike any other pizza bases we have ever used. Apart from being softer, they are also a lot more filling that the generic ones available in the market. So this is definitely one product that we will keep coming back for.
Price: Rs 45 for 2 pieces of 8 inches.
Whole Wheat Bread
This one is a crowd favorite at A Colorful Riot! If you think you knew bread, your thoughts are certainly about to change after trying this one. First impressions, we absolutely loved the color of the bread. It looked so fresh and inviting that we couldn’t keep our hands off off it. This was the first item to finish within minutes. You can taste the sweetness of the bread which is a pleasant change from the usual white breads that we consume.
Price: Rs. 60
Pavs are an extremely versatile bakery item. You can use them with the Bumbaiya bhaji, make sliders or go crazy like us and make vada pavs. But when the best bakery in Chandigarh tricity is providing you with such delicious and quality items, you want to do full justice to them!
Price: Rs. 60 for a set of 6 paos.

We also had the opportunity to talk to Mr. Ayush Singla, the founder of Brown Baking Company (and the best bakery in Chandigarh) to know more about the venture and the precautions that they are taking in light of Covid-19. Here are some excerpts:
Can you tell us a little bit about your venture and how long it has been going on?
Hello, I’m Ayush Singla. I have been in the food and Beverage industry for about 8 years now. Also, my restaurant, Playground- café and bar is my additional venture. Brown Baking Company was established around a year ago, keeping in mind the daily needs of our consumers today, and bringing the café delights to your own home!
What was your first reaction to the Coronavirus situation?
Brown Baking Company primarily focuses on breads as well as our much-enjoyed bakery items. Additionally, we supply to various super markets around the Tri-City area. So we ensured we achieved the required permissions from the administration before starting to supply in the current situation.
Having restarted operations, what changes have you had to make to your process? What precautions are you taking to ensure safe delivery of your products to customers?
We have been taking extra precautions to ensure the safe handling of all food items prepared in our facility, requiring the use of sanitizers, face masks, gloves, constant cleaning. Also, a tie up with Zomato and Swiggy in order avail the benefits of a no contact delivery.
Do you think some of these changes you would like to sustain in the long term?
I believe the changes and adaptations that we are taking should become a lifestyle habit moving forward…(constant hand washing, sanitizing kitchens, maintaining top quality hygiene standards are a few things we will continue to maintain). Surely, food with technology is the way forward by which I am referring to online ordering. We strive to become the tricity’s top online and offline Bakery and Cakery.
Do you have any message for our readers?
